UEFA has confirmed that the Champions League semi-finals that were scheduled to take place next week will go on as planned.
Chelsea, Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Paris Saint-Germain are the remaining teams in the competitions and with the latest saga involving the European Super League, there was some fear that the ties would be canceled.
ESPN now reports that UEFA does not intend to disqualify three of the teams involved in the breakaway Super League; PSG the only team among the quartet who didn’t confirm participation in the newly formed league.
Earlier on Tuesday, Uefa president Aleksandr Čeferin called on the teams involved in the Super League to change their stance a move many thought would have messed with the remaining games in the Champions League.
“Gentlemen, you made a mistake. There is still time to change your minds,” he said at their annual congress in Switzerland on Monday.
Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City are all part of the new division which has caused huge ructions amongst the global football elite.
